Welcome from the SGA President

Dear Broncs,

My name is Olivia Barone and I am honored to serve you as your 2018-2019 Student Body President. On behalf of the Student Government Association (SGA), I am so excited to have you as a part of our Rider community. Whether this is your first semester on campus or your last, we want to wish you the best of luck and success!

You are part of a student body that is actively engaged in enacting the changes they want to see on campus. It is our goal and aim as your Student Government Association to make your University experience complete, as well as to provide an opportunity to lead and serve your fellow students and community. SGA is here because of you and we want to channel all of our energy and resources towards initiatives and issues in which you are most passionate.

The best advice I can give you to ensure you’re enriched in our thriving community is to get involved. Whether through your engagement in SGA, Fraternity and Sorority life, or our 100 + student organizations on campus, your leadership and involvement experiences strengthen our Rider community. Rider’s clubs and organizations hosts events almost every day, and there is never a shortage of things to do around here -- you just have to know where to look. Just look around to see all that there is to do; there are television monitors across campus, flyers in residence halls, social media announcements, and email blasts that alert students to all the events happening each day. Even better, if you go to BroncNation, you can find the list of student organizations, their contact information, and the calendar of events so that you can become a part of the action.

If there is ever anything that I, or my fellow Executive, Cabinet or Senate members of the Student Government Association can do to improve your collegiate experience or strengthen your bond with this University, please do not hesitate to stop by our office in the Student Leadership Suite of the BLC, send me an email, or even just say “hi”. I look forward to hearing your story and how SGA can be a part of it.

Have a great semester and Go Broncs!
